Queens Speech confirms positive news for freelancers says PCG

Queens Speech confirms positive news for freelancers says PCG
 
PCG, the voice of the UKs 1.4 million freelance workers, has responded positively to yesterdays Queens Speech.
 
The Speech outlined plans to make the tax system fairer and simpler, welcome news for many PCG members who have struggled under the IR35 legislation.
 
Commenting, PCG Managing Director John Brazier said:
This builds on the Governments announcement to seek a replacement for IR35. By all accounts, the momentum is clearly building to consign this unfair and unclear piece of legislation to the scrapheap. In particular we warmly welcome the Governments stated commitment to establish an Office of Tax Simplification. Once IR35 is placed under the scrutiny of such a body, it will be exposed for the iniquitous and overly complex block on enterprise it really is.
 
Britains 1.4 million freelance workers are ready and willing to help the UKs economic recovery. Any moves to simplify tax and reduce regulatory burdens will help nano-businesses. We will continue to work with Government, and keep the momentum building to abolish IR35 which, after all, has been PCG's core objective since inception."
